Do you have a child aged between 5 and 15 years old and you don’t know how to entertain them during the weekend? Relax. Send them to our fun Saturday Kids Club from 9:00 – 15:00 at Ebony Forest Chamarel. We will keep them busy and tire them out with a wide-range of activities: nature walks, crafting with natural items such as leaves and twigs, plant and animal identification, den-making, wildlife spotting and so much more.
Our Kids Club will help create little nature lovers and ambassadors for Mauritian wildlife. They will partake in sowing seeds, learning to identify rare and endangered animals by sound and sight and explore nature. Much of the day will be spent outdoors in the forest, exploring and discovering what Mother Nature has to offer. We also have indoor activities, for when it gets a little too hot or in case of bad weather. Spend your Saturday with the peace of mind that your child is with our trained, welcoming and attentive guides.
Spending time outdoors helps improve creativity, build self-confidence, make new friends and of course burn of plenty of energy. For lunch, you can send your child with a packed lunch or they can eat in our restaurant.
Why not consider buying an annual pass for your child (5-12 years) for Rs500 or Rs 975 for older children and getting 10% discount off your Kids Club activities.
